When opening HEIC or HEVC files into Photoshop you may see one of the following messages:
- Additional non Adobe software is needed to open .HEIC files
Install the required software so Photoshop can open this file.
- Could not open "imagename.heic" because Photoshop cannot recognize the file extension.
To successfully import HEIC and HEVC files into Photoshop, download and install both of the HEIF and HEVC Image Extensions directly from Microsoft.
